All well that ends well (and vice versa)

So, level 35 high elf mage with good gear, spell books (Raals and Resistance), high speed and stats confidently enters dungeon level 42.
"Omens of death haunt this place"
Party time

And there is this four-section kind of room (not a vault, mind you, everyday rooms) with gear and some critters. Telepathy and reveal monsters show that we have in one room: Uvatha the Horseman and Ariel Queen of Air (!)
Second room:
Stone Troll triplet Tom, Bert and Bill (yes, all of them!!), Scatha the Worm (!!!) and .... Witch King of Angmar (!!!!! :0 What the HELL???)

TOssed Witch King out the way, dealt with rest of the buggers one by one (stealth is good) and then decided to at least try a few rounds with the Big Bad.

The Nazgul party time
So I teleported (Yes, I know, bad idea) and of course landed right next to the Witch King and the next instance was standing next to not one but 3 Nazgul. OK, teleported out before anything happened.
Instead of recall out, decided to go ghostbusting. Tactical use of TO allowed me to off the ringwraiths one by one starting from the least scary (Yes, Witch King eventually summoned ALL of them), went 3 levels (!) up in the process (Balrog of Moria also joined the party and was dealt with) and finally beat the Witch King after lengthy spell casting competition that seriously depleted my restore mana and healing stockpiles (the bastard took about 1000 meteor swarms before agreeing to be dead already)

OK, ringwrights all dead and loot of about 10 artifacts, some really nice. Life is good.

Decided to clean up the dungeon and perhaps get one more level from the summoned undead and demons still hanging around. That was success again, indeed one level more after few nightwings and bile demons. Perfect, about the time go back to town soon... just kill these few remaining baddies.
...

Overconfidence, not paying attention to what's actually happening...

Got rather unceremoniously butchered by a horned reaper.

Bummer.
